Streetlight switch-offs: A failed experiment?

Clare Murden of Nottinghamshire County Council tells LuxLive 2014 why the council turned its lights off... then turned them back on again.

With concerns from residents about crime and road accidents on unlit streets, and the rapidly improving performance of energy-saving technologies like LEDs and controls, is the era of streetlight switch-offs now in the past?

After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or call him +2348105150446 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS’

Why arn't movement sensors used? Isn't this the most obvious solution ever i.e. light when people require light, else OFF!

There are so many better ways to save energy than just turning street lights off. I'm glad we're getting beyond this.
